Featured Southern Caribbean Cruise Ports
Survey the Southern Caribbean’s most famous islands (plus our main departure port).
- St. Lucia

Aruba defies expectations with a vibrant desert interior ringed with white sand beaches, a dramatic northern coastline, and quaint colonial Dutch architecture. Cruise to Aruba's famous aloe plantations and factories, and learn their historical importance to the island. Visit the California lighthouse, named for the steamship that sank off the coast over a hundred years ago. Stroll through Oranjestad, the picturesque, Dutch-inspired capital while browsing for the perfect souvenir to remind you of your time here.
A small paradise off the coast of Venezuela, Bonaire has some of the world's most pristine diving and snorkeling locations. Preserved coral reefs wait in the warm water, easy to explore from the comfortable beach clubs ashore. Take a diving or snorkeling expedition to the uninhabited island of Klein Bonaire, offroad through the wild mangrove forests and salt flats of the island's interior, or take in the sights of the quaint Dutch-influenced capital by trolley.
With its dramatic landscapes, arid interior and pastel-painted Dutch-style houses, Curaçao is a distinct delight nestled in the warm Caribbean Sea. Cruises to Curaçao allow you to enjoy many beautiful beaches, snorkel through the shipwreck of a 50-year-old tugboat, or marvel at the striking sea cliffs of Boka Tabla. If the history of the island fascinates you, take a tour of the charming capital of Willemstad, or visit Fort Amsterdam and see the cannonball still embedded in its walls from a battle hundreds of years ago.
Pristine, lush and alive, Dominica escaped modern civilization's penchant for paving every surface and has remained a nature lover's paradise. Dive into the gorgeous blue depths of the dormant volcanic crater in Scotts Head Marine Reserve, and witness the vibrant sea life that makes it a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Explore the verdant rainforests, botanical gardens and waterfalls of the island's interior, and experience a slice of heaven on earth
A lush rainforest-covered island nestled between two volcanic peaks, the UNESCO World Heritage Site known as the Pitons, St. Lucia is the definition of a tropical paradise. Cruise to St. Lucia and visit the famous Pitons, journey to the only drive-through volcanic cavern in the world, or experience the sulfur mud baths and recharge your batteries in ancient pools. Travel to the town of Soufriere, supposedly the birthplaces of Napoleon's Queen Josephine, zipline through the lush jungle canopy, or relax on one of the islands many resort beaches.
The "Venice of America" has been the premier destination for spring breakers for almost six decades, but don't let that fool you into thinking the city is one big party. From the Everglades, a UNESCO World Heritage Site home to an amazingly rich biosphere, to seven miles of white-sand beaches, Ft. Lauderdale is a beautifully diverse city.
